category that include the most popular guns used for self-defense, competition, and hunting. when president obama promises that no one's talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, it matters that gun control activists may, in fact, be talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, whether they know it or not. so let's forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous, fearmongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control. it may be politically effective to rail against rapid fire, high capacity, assault weapons. doesn't actually mean anything. so if we're serious, we should at least start by getting the terms right. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> just a quick question. how many rounds did jared loughner fire off before he was tackled? >> what's your point? >> how many rounds had he fired off? >> i'm not sure. i don't remember. >> 31. >> okay. >> he was actually tackled because he was reloading. >> we should be trying to stop crazy people and criminals, martin, from shooting one person, no

have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t

hagel for defense secretary nomination might come up. after a week of white house gun violence meetings, it's not clear if the president will seek to reinstate a ban on assault style rifles. even if he does opposition is hardening. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> reporter: west virginia democrat joe manchin, who sounded open to new gun control measures immediately after the newtown massacre now wants a slow moving washington commission. >> if you just want gun bans you're wrong. >> what do we need? >> we need a comprehensive approach. >> reporter: with sales of firearms that congress might ban now sky rocketing, a top senate democrat called for a voluntary moratorium. >> if we continue to see nearly 80,000 gun sales each month in states all over the country, it's going to be counterproductive to whatever solution we will implement. >> reporter: the new york legislature sped towards passage of a tough new assault weapons ban. a move more states may copy as similar efforts stall in

. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up

sea block but first i've come to the defense of a friend in need. my mentor, colleague and competitive couples massage partner bill o'reilly. we're going to regionals, bill. stay loose. he is once again being attacked by the liberal media for speaking the truth. you know what this means? this is blood in the water. shark, shark, shark, shark, shark, shark. folks on last thursday's the factor papa bear was discussing obama's home state of hawaii, aloha zone. he made this astute observation. >> i have to say hawaii is one of my favorite places in the world. a lot of social problems because they don't enforce the drug laws. you know what is shock 35% of the hawaiian population is asian. asian people are not liberal by nature. they are usually more indust industrious and hard working. >> stephen: leave it to liberal media to twist that to racism. he was not being racist. he was painting an entire race with one brush. speaking of which vietnamese, great painters. did my entire garage in an afternoon. didn't use scaffolding. they hung from vines.

's interesting that a lot of times, you have people who recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same folks who say we've got to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, when it comes to that defense contractor in their district, they think, wow, this is a pretty important part of the economy in my district. we shouldn't stop spending on that. let's just make sure that we're not spending on those other folks. [ inaudible question ] >> look, my hope is that common sense prevails. that's always my preference. and i think that would be the preference of the american people and that's what would be good for the economy. so let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficits sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner with me. we can achieve that and we can achieve it fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are, we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take, and we've already done probably more than half of the deficit

% defense against the flu, this really raises your chances of not getting it. and if you do receive it, and you do actually get the flu, there's a good chance that the flu that you get, the symptoms are going to be much less. you'll be sick for fewer days and your fever will be -- your symptoms -- you'll feel much better. and it will not be anywhere near as severe as if you had not received the vaccine. >> right. so let me ask you, as somebody who has not gotten a flu shot because i have not yet. if i wait for new stocks to come in, are those vaccines better suited to the flu? do they then become more effective as the flu season goes on? >> no. the vaccine is the same vaccine that's being produced by the pharmaceutical companies. usually the world health organization will try to predict which strains are going to be the predominant strains. about a year in advance. and then it takes the pharmaceutical companies about -- probably about six months to produce the vaccine. once it's in production, it's not being modified until the subsequent flu season. >> the same vaccine you could have g

from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns. first of all, there are plenty of shotgun owners during the civil rights era, but to reduce john lewis' service to this country and the civil rights movement and the black experience and the overall american experience in this country to him getting beat upside the head is disgusting and offensive. this is a man who

obama's nominee for defense secretary, chuck hagel. later, "q&a" with author jason brennan. >> our guest on c-span's "newsmakers" is hobby or becerra of california. josh is xavier becerra -- is xavier becerra of california. let me introduce our two reporters. ginger gibson of "politico." and mike lillis of "the hill." >> we are going to look at the fiscal cliff first. this egg, hard-fought battle over spending and cuts. you have plenty of experience in this arena. the fiscal cliff comes along. you get a deal. you voted against it here and you were the only democrat to vote against it. why did you vote against it? >> there were several of us on the democratic side that voted against it. my sense is that if we are going to really move this country forward, we have to start dealing with the big challenges we face -- physically, socially -- now, not do these short-term fixes. a long-term fix would have included something that would have disposed of the so-called fiscal cliff. i believe this short-term deal creates three new fiscal cliff's, which is not the way you want to run -- whether it i

. think market's response today reflects that. in defense of our competitors, and there's a bit of a push now about this whole break you banks i think it is dead wrong. >> do you think they will actually do it? >> i pray and hope we don't do it. >> i didn't ask what you pray. do you think congress would take off. >> i don't think. >> that shed headline. you think this is noise. >> they will take up debate. reasonable people will get through and debates of series of these things last few years that will recognize it is an essential element of american competitiveness and there is actually no industrial lodgic for it. >> kind of interesting. richard fisher --. david: he was on yesterday, saying his plan. by the way let me ask about that. fisher was asking specifically, he thinks not breaking up the banks necessarily but denying anything but the commercial banks open windows from the federal reserve. cutting off the pipeline for the financials. >> that would be a free market way to break up the banks. just dawned to me i should have asked this question. sometimes this happens. does he want t

it or not. and the number of companies that would really be affected from walmart to every defense contractor to giant health care companies, if their ability to collect money that is owed to them is then put in doubt, that triggers a whole, you know, range of activities of other people wanting to collect debts from them. >> sounds really scary. do me a favor, though, and crawl in to president obama's head for me and tell me why you think in 2006 he voted not to raise the debt ceiling and said the fact we're here today to debate raising the debt limit is a sign of leadership failure, the sign the u.s. government can't pay his own bills. what was he thinking there? >> voting against an increase of the debt kreeling is what you do in the opposition party. >> oh, okay. >> in congress. this is going back for the last many years. >> yeah. >> all the republicans in the senate voted for increases when bush was in office. they vote against it when obama is in office. and vice versa. the problem or challenges now is the house where republicans don't want to vote for it and we need them, you

. >> you know, i was looking at a quote from the defense secretary, leon panetta. he uses more colorful language than i normally use on the show, so i hope our viewers forgive me, but i'd like to quote him. word choice is important here. he said this. who the hell knows what they're going to do from day to day he's talking about north korea. right now you know north korea just fired a missile. it's an intercontinental ballistic missile, and that means they have the capability to strike the united states. interesting if we could zero in on one part of that statement. who knows what they're going to do from day to day? it sounds like a reckless statement by the defense secretary, but a reckless assessment of a potential enemy. >> north korea is not a status quo power. it has used violence in the past to upset status quos that it found to be unacceptable. this kept the peace in the second half of the cold war. we had nuclear weapons. the soviets did. we didn't use them. the north koreans and possibly the iranians may not be status quo power. >> it's interesting you mention eyiran. when you

think the republicans are hoping that they have a manti te'o defense, that somehow it was all a hoax and maybe the election was a hoax and they can go back and redo everything. no. i think the republican -- the white house strategy is make the house republicans try to do something. and i think that -- and my understanding what house republican leadership wants to do is they have to figure out how to pass -- how to pass a raise in the debt limit at all first. to just put something out there to prove that they can get leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file
